English: A wave develops on the front as an upper level low pressure system, embedded in the jet stream moves, over the front. The front develops a "kink" where the wave is developing. The stationary front changes into a cold front and warm front as the air masses begin to move. Precipitation will begin to develop with the heaviest occurrence along the front.

This image is in the public domain because it was stored on the web servers of the U.S. National Weather Service. NWS-created images are automatically public domain in the U.S. since the NWS is a part of the U.S. government. However, the NWS sites also host non-NWS images which have been submitted by individuals: these are generally shown as "Courtesy of ...". Such images have explicitly been released to the public domain by the copyright owner as part of the upload process.

As stated at "The information on National Weather Service (NWS) Web pages are in the public domain, unless specifically noted otherwise...".

Thus, all images on NWS servers are public domain (including "Courtesy of ..." images) unless specifically stated otherwise.
